As you all may know I have damaged my left shoulder and a couple of months ago my doctor sent a referal to the hospital for surgery, I recieved a letter yesterday saying I was on a waiting list for an appointment, after the phone ringing off all day yesterday and most of this morning some one finally answered the phone, my first question was how long is the waiting list, she asked me if I was sitting down, now wait for it, drum roll
waiting time just for an appointment to the clinic FOUR years.

Tell me about it, I know already it will need operating on, my question is how long is the waiting list for that after seeing the specialist, by the time they are ready to go ahead I could be six foot under, it's not when did we become a third world country but how long have we been one, the pollies are so out of touch it's not funny any more peoples lives are at risk, and all they worry about who can call each other the worst name instead of addressing what is really important.

Don. I bet if one of those politicians had a relative who didn't have private health insurance there would be some discreet phone calls being made. They say we the voters get the politicians we deserve. Did we really deserve the current bunch of self absorbed narcissists.
